Ontario has issued new invitations through its Skilled Trades Stream for Canada PR. Express Entry Candidates receiving the invitations can apply for Provincial Nomination. On March 21, The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program or OINP sent a total of 361 invitations.
The invitations were sent to eligible candidates. They had submitted their profiles between 21st March 2018 and 21st March 2019. Their eligibility depends on the following criteria –
The Federal Express Entry System manages a pool of candidates under 3 main categories.
Candidates fulfilling the criteria for any of the 3 categories receive a nomination for Canada PR. Ontario issued the invitations as part of the Skilled Trades Stream. The province searched for Skilled Workers and Experience Class Immigrants living in Canada.
To be eligible, the candidates needed to have a minimum of 1 year of work experience. Their skills must have been listed in Canada’s National Occupational Classification list. Part-time work experience was also considered. However, the skills should have been listed in Minor Group 633 or Major Group 72 or 82.
Candidates could apply to the stream without needing a job offer. However, the OINP has its own set of requirements for them to fulfil. Immigrants who received the invitations managed to get an additional 600 points. This, in turn, guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canada PR.
The OINP has issued a total of 732 invitations to date through the Express Entry Program. It’s said to be the most attractive option for potential Immigrants willing to move to Canada. However, possessing the in-demand skills is a must. The province aims at easing its labour shortage, as quoted by CIC News. Hence, skilled and experienced Immigrants with at least a year of work experience should apply to the OINP.
